My name is Alyson and I am the Operations Manager for Hamilton Victory Gardens. I am a botanist and plant pathologist by training, with over 15 years in the agriculture and education industries. My strengths are creating organizational framework, leadership development, graphic design, program and outreach coordination, policy writing and risk assessment. And of course, all this is done with a passion for gardening. I recently worked at Royal Botanical Gardens where I was coordinating their children's gardening programs / community plots and working as a outdoor education instructor. I invite you to introduce yourself the next time we are in the garden, and don't be shy - I love to chat and am often seen with a cup of tea in my hand. Happy Gardening!
